I sent my mom some Mothers Day gifts: two 3/4 sleeve Deer & Doe Plantain t-shirts. She sent back photos!
I chose the Deer & Doe Plantain t-shirt for my Mom because she loves the one I made her a couple years ago. She wears it a ton and finds the 3/4 sleeves to be the perfect transition shirt for spring and/or fall, as well as the occasional cool summer day in New England.
The first version I made is from some Art Gallery Fabrics knits from imagine gnats (affiliate link). My mom spotted it in my stash when she was in Bangkok and liked it, so I parted ways with it. Love those AG knits... squishy and soft with good recovery.
The second top was made from some striped cotton/spandex jersey we bought together in Hanoi, Vietnam. They had some really nice, thick jersey, fairly cheap.
I realized after I started cutting out this Plantain why the jersey was pretty inexpensive: the stripes are not straight! It was a bit of a beast to stripe match. I was only somewhat successful. But the shirt still looks great and is totally wearable.
Thanks for sending photos, Mom!
